This is the correct behavior regardless of whether sub1 and sub2 come
from the same repository or different repositories.

*WHAT* error message?!?  How do you expect us to help you when you won't
tell us any details about the error?  I cannot reproduce your problem
with CVS 1.11.19 -- situation b works just like situation a, as it
should.  Please recreate the problem using ``cvs -t'' to get a trace and
post the results.
